2011 Mas Jullien, Carlan Terrasses du Larzac

Sold Out

The Carlan cuvée is an old-vine blend of Grenache (60%), Carignan (30%) and 10% shared between Syrah and Cinsault. Schist soils underwrite the sinewy linear texture, aided and abetted by 12 months elevage in fine –grained oak foudre. A forest floor nose with the whiff of a distant bonfires leads onto a palate of dark berried fruit with hints of chocolate, cassis and violet with tapenade and hedgerow underneath.
